An interwiki search which return results on another project which are not in the main namespace, use the canonical namespace, which is wrong for that language. So in the URL it should have 'Ayuda' instead of 'Help'.
Note that since groups are joined by language, it could use the local translation for that namespace, except for NS_PROJECT (NS_PROJECT_TALK). The value of wgMetaNamespace would need to be fetched from SiteConf.
Results from extra namespaces don't present this issue, they have the right namespace name.

Platonides, I don't remember, wasn't this feature removed completely? (And is there a bug somewhere to restore it? It's one of the features I liked most in MediaWiki's history.)
Yes, it was removed at some point. Although this bug shows that it was active in 2009. Feel free to open a bug to restore it, blocking on this bug.

See attachment 6850 [details].
Interwiki search no longer exists in Lucene, and interwiki search in Cirrus will look nothing like it looks in Lucene. Therefore, in the present day, this bug is RESOLVED INVALID.
Actually, the very example provided in comment 0 proves this bug is valid for Cirrus too (though I wouldn't call it a severe bug).
That link certainly doesn't spit out a nice looking page:
This one doesn't look great either:
wikivoyage:Project:Main Page guidelines
wikivoyage:Kruger National Park
These are all ugly, but don't show the language problem. I can't reproduce the language issue but wouldn't be surprised about it. Say you search on de.wikipedia.org. You want the namespaces to come back translated properly into German regardless of what the actual wiki's language is in.
This is sort of being worked on as a result of other things.
I think this is better as of today. We should configure it on beta for more languages and test.
I'm pretty sure this is better now. If we can find any examples in Cirrus where it's wrong feel free to reopen.
